Oats Coconut Milk Pudding(Pradhaman)...No Eggs Needed.

Pradhaman in all its creamy and coconutty flavors reflects the exotic coastal state of Kerala in South India.The pudding makes the sweet side of the Sadya(big feast) served on banana leaf.Usually made with rice flakes,the whole oats seem to work just fine as the substitute for it.This delectable dessert is the creation of Madhuram at Eggless cooking,the blog with amazing eggless baking ideas,is also featured this month for Tried and Tasted event,the hostess of the month is Poornima of Tasty treats.

Recipe adapted from Madhuram's Eggless Cooking

1/2 cup Whole rolled oats
*1/4 cup Jaggery ,grated[available in most Asian stores)
1 cup Water
1 cup(about 4 ounce) Lite Coconut Milk
Roasted nuts and dried fruits for garnish

*If Jaggery is hard to find use 2 tablespoon brown or white sugar,or 3 teaspoon Agave nectar.

In a heavy bottom sauce pan add the jaggery ,oats and water.Bring to a slow boil and cook until oats are softened.Reduce the heat and add the coconut milk,let simmer for 4-5 minutes until thick and creamy.Serve warm ,garnish with roasted nuts and dried fruits.

That looks great...I thought it was rice at first but then realized its with oats! I think I'll have to try this out. Question though..if you dont have jaggery can you use granulated sugar? Or what would you suggest? Thanks!
